Shen School District holds gift wrapping fundraiser to benefit 8-year-old boy who was hit by a car

CLIFTON PARK, NY (NEWS10) – People at the Orenda Elementary Schools in Shenendehowa School District held a holiday gift wrapping fundraiser for 8-year-old Malachi Lyons Saturday.

Malachi is the young boy who was hit by a car in Schenectady back on November 18th.

Saturday, volunteers including the Shenendehowa Superintendent and Clifton Park Town Supervisor wrapped up holiday gifts for donations.

All proceeds collected will go to Malachi and his family’s living expenses and hospital bills.

“Nice young man and his mother is trying to do the best she can and medical bills are just piling up,” said organizer Jason Krolack.

There was also a bake sale and children activities for keep the little ones entertained while the gifts were being wrapped.

And the Orenda 5th grade chorus was there to sing Christmas carols for everyone’s pleasure.
